The Mag #183 "Temptation"


Temptation

Dangerous curves
ahead,

testosterone blinding,
warning passed over -

life's fleeting choices
devoured...

full speed ahead.

I HIGHLY recommend you flip over to Mr. Kelly's Photographic blog - I have highlighted his "In honour of Shetland" post as the scenic beauty took my breath away ... he writes "thought I'd treat you to a collection of some of my works of the idyllic coastline and dramatic rolling interiors that make these islands so gorgeous."  Truly, it makes me yearn to travel and see the world.

The poem is for "The Mag #183"- her featured photo by Steven Kelly.

I could have used this advice when I was younger! There was a wonderful cadence to this poem :)

Look out for testosterone man! There's one round every corner.

This could be advice for love, but also seems describes lots of drives I've had with men (when they've gotten mad for some reason.). Very well described. This is Karin of Manicddaily.

Love the sense of testosterone fueled movement you've created in this.
